“Great hospitality - a sanctuary in the hustle and bustle of Seminyak”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

From the moment we started inquiring about this villa we knew it was going to be a great stay with excellent communication and detailed email responses to our many questions, including those regarding safety for our young kids (4yo and 2yo).

On entering the vIlla we were greeted by Wayan and Putu who were amazing the whole time we were there. Nothing was too much trouble and the calm and friendly nature was indicative of the Bali culture everyone adores.

We traveled with two families each with 2 adults and 2 kids (8 people total) so it was a very lively villa (ie we were loud!). There was plenty of room for everyone and we never felt like we were cramped.

It was a short walk to some good restaurants including Hog Wild (which we went back to twice!) and the beach. be warned though the walk is not for the faint hearted as footpaths are non-existent in some parts and with prams it can be a little hairy contending with traffic. All part of the fun but be wary of this if you have kid

The dinner Wayan''s family cooked for us was one of the highlights of the holiday and we only wish we'd done it earlier ion the trip. The fish cooked by their son next to the pool was to die for and the kids loved the spaghetti bolognaise. We also had a couple of traditional Indonesian dishes and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the food. It was also very cheap by anyone's standards and I HIGHLY recommend at least one or two dinners 'in'.

The included breakfasts were also very good with the pancakes being a huge hit with kids and adults alike! We also looked forward to our daily fruit smoothie!

The villa itself was very nice, well laid out, a great pool (and ponds complete with resident turtles that Wayan feeds!) and the rooms were all very well maintained and beds were comfortable. My only criticism is that the property itself is in need of a little bit of a general upgrade. Nothing immediately noticeable or affecting safety but the kitchen could do with a spruce up, some of the flooring on the upper levels needed attention and one of the blinds was broken in the upper rooms. Nothing to affect our holiday, just something the owners may want to consider in the near future.

Overall this was a fantastic holiday and I would recommend the villa to anyone travelling in a larger group or with kids (although be wary of the roads as mentioned).

Thanks you to Tom, Rene, Wayan and Putu for a memorable holiday.

Thanks so much for your kind comments on Villa Rene, and glad you really enjoyed your stay. Absolutely concur with your comments about the kitchen, and in fact in February we shut Villa Rene for three weeks to carry out extensive renovations, to not only replace the kitchen floor and rework the cabinets, but also to replace the floors in two of the bedrooms, repair and replace some of the broken tiles in the pool and some other small things as well. Villa Rene is looking pretty great now! We will post some photos soon on our Facebook page if you want to see full gory details! Thanks again Tom

“Great Villa & Great Staff”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The best thing about Villa Rene is the wonderful team of Wayan, Putu and Madé who really looked after us. They adore kids and were more than happy to babysit and give us some adult time.

The villa itself is spotlessly clean and comfortable - it looks exactly like the photos although the garden furniture could do with being replaced. Location-wise the villa is in the Batu-Belig part of Seminyak and situated up a small quiet road. Although you can walk to some beach/shops from here, you'll find the best beaches and restaurants are 10mins or so away - but easily/cheaply reachable by car/taxi.

We had some issues with our final payment which we feel could have been handled better by the owners but it all worked out in the end - I would just advise you to pay into their UK or US accounts rather than by any other method!

Thank you so much for finding the time to write a review. We really do appreciate it, and we read all reviews we get, and try very hard to make improvements where relevant.

Also our apologies for the payment problems on your second payment. It was our fault, as our bank managed to lose the payment and totally denied this despite us calling many many times to both our local branch and the head office in Jakarta.

In the end you had to put out a trace which proved that our bank had received it, and only after that did they transfer it to our account, 2 weeks late and more than $100 short. We of course covered the $100 shortfall, and gave you a bottle of wine at the villa for your troubles, but our apologies if we did not deal with the problem to your satisfaction. We did try our best, but banks are sometimes a law unto themselves.

This was the first time we tried to accept AUD, as you (and some other guests) prefer to pay this way, and this may have been the issue. As a result of what happened though we have taken a decision not to use this method again, and will stick with the tried and trusted payment methods of credit card, or bank transfers in GBP, IDR or USD.

Our apologies again for the problems, and I hope that it did not spoil your stay at Villa Rene too much.

Kind Regards
Tom

“fabulous Villa, wonderful staff - perfect for children”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I stayed at this Villa for a week with my three small children (aged 4 months, 3 and 4) and my sister and her two small children (aged 4 months and 2 ) with my mum and my sisters mother in law. The Villa is fantastic for children as it includes a pool fence, has toys and highchairs and is a house (as opposed to lots of separate buildings) so can be closed up to avoid mosquitoes and for extra safety. The staff are superb, more attentive than in any other Bali villa I have stayed at. We got them to cook a few dinners at a fantastic cost and thoroughly enjoyed the meals.

The only negative I have with this wonderful villa is that it is a good 15 min drive from Seminyaks premier shopping road but this also has the advantage of making it lovely and quiet.

Also presently the Canggu club is undergoing renovations so they didn't have any children's facilities....but once renovated (I think by mid 2014?) the children's facilities will be fantastic and well worth a look.

Definitely a Villa worth booking.

“An oasis of tranquility and harmony”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Villa René is exceptional for its serenity and beauty, the friendliness, reliability and openness of the host couple, and the charm of the house. It felt like a home away from home, lush and tranquil amidst the -- regrettably -- increasing noise and traffic of tourist Bali, informal and relaxed. A special bonus was the Canggu Club, where we could indulge our secret colonial fantasies and enjoy the pub, the pool, the spa, the gym and the excellent food. Two families with four teenagers, we warmly recommend Villa René to others. The price was just right.
